Red currants and shredded coconuts don’t belong in a muffin?!…of course they do! Its so yummy! These muffins are perfect for breakfast or brunch, but who can resist them for afternoon, evening, and even midnight snacks? They’re just too good.
- 1 cup of all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 8 tablespoons or 1 stick of butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon of orange rind
- 2 tablespoons of orange juice
- 2 tablespoons of sweetened coconut
- 1 cup of red currants (fresh or frozen)
- electric mixer
- 1 large bowl
- 1 wooden spoon
- muffin pan
- muffin cups
- measuring cup
- measuring spoon
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups, or line with paper muffin liners.
- Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.
- In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
- Beat in eggs into the creamed mixture until blended
- Add flour mixture. Mix some more.
- Add orange rind, coconut and orange juice. Mix some more.
- Fold in gently the red currants with a wooden spoon.
- Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full.
- Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes Place muffin cups on center rack of the preheated oven and bake until tops are golden and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
- Allow to cool.
Next, we like to give add an orange glaze and add a coconut topping. This added touch is a perfect way to serve the muffins to your guests. However, the glaze and coconut are optional. The muffins right out of the oven is great to have with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee too.
Orange Glaze Instructions
- 1 cup of confectionery sugar
- 2 to 3 tablespoon of orange juice
Glaze the muffins with orange glaze.
- In a small bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar and 2 to 3 tablespoons of orange juice. Mix until smooth, then refrigerate until thickened. Drizzle over cooled muffins.
- Sprinkle with coconut over the glaze. Add one red currant in the center of the muffin.
Happy Spring lovelies!!! 🙂
